Jussie Smollett's Siblings Say He's a Victim of 'Irresponsible Media'

Cardi B Tears Into Jussie Smollett: He ‘F—ed Up Black History Month’

Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielimi says the two "persons of interest" are now considered suspects. He said the men shouted the slurs and yelled "This is MAGA country", an apparent reference to President Donald Trump's campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again".

"I'm really disappointed in Jussie Smollett", Cardi B said in an Instagram video.

Smollett's legal team insists on denying all claims that announce him as anything other than the victim.

Smollett-Bell, who played Nicole Wright in the smash HBO series True Blood, then shared a screenshot from her brother of a tweet in support of the Empire star.

The rapper continued, "I'm not gonna say yet until he say it out his mouth that it was fake and this s-t was staged-I don't want to completely blame him". Kavanagh didn't immediately respond to a request for comment Tuesday.

Seven MPs resign from Labour party over Brexit and antisemitism
In some ways, Coffey quitting the party today may mark the end of almost three years of that particular internal struggle. He said those who were reported to be on the cusp of leaving were "Labour through and through" and "wouldn't want this".

Federal law enforcement officials are investigating a new allegation made by the two brothers in the Jussie Smollett case that Smollett was involved in sending a hate letter to himself a week prior to the alleged attack. Now represented by Chicago defense attorneys Todd S. Pugh and Victor P. Henderson, Smollett and everyone else could have seen the high profile Geragos using his pundit platform to basically audition for the gig on a CNN appearance on Monday night where the the lawyer offered a spirited rallying for the actor.

Was actor Jussie Smollett offered a job at CNN after fabricating a news story out of thin air? It also has been learned that the two men were extras on "Empire".

Producers of "Empire" dispute media reports that Smollett's character was being written off the show.

The latest turn in the whirlwind case comes after the Osundairos told investigators that Smollett hatched the idea to stage the January 29 attack because he was upset over the lack of attention the threatening letter received, sources told ABC.

News of this comes after the police said the information they received from the two men who were questioned about the alleged assault "shifted the trajectory of the investigation".
